The Gift a Plan option is available to all prepaid Digicel customers and will take the hassle out of buying a data plan for friends and family.
To Gift a Plan to their nearest and dearest, customers can easily select the type of plan they wish to purchase on behalf of others through the *777# menu, which has replaced the commonly used *129*.
Digicel Managing Director, Mobile, Shivan Bhargava said customers will have the option to select from 11 different data plans under the new menu.
“Digicel is committed to keeping people connected across the country and the Gift a Plan cements this vision,” he said.
“By dialling *777#, our customers will find it easier and more affordable to choose the data plan that is best suited to their wantoks’ needs.
“Importantly, customers will no longer have to memorise short codes and keywords to ensure those closest to them have up to date data plans and they will not be charged any additional fee for doing so.”
The 11 Gift a Plan data plans include:
To buy a data plan for others, customers simply dial *777# and press send, followed by selecting option 6 > Gift a Plan. Customers will then be prompted to select their desired data plan duration, which is available in increments of one day, three days, seven days and Night Pass.
Once selected, customers will be required to enter the mobile number they wish to gift the data plan to, ensuring 675 is included at the front of the number. From there, customers can select the data plan under the data duration they selected and press the option next to the data plan they require to confirm their purchase.
The plan-gifting menu is also available on the My Digicel app, which can be downloaded from Google Play store or App Store.
Digicel Manager, Consumer Marketing, Animesh Sarkar has strongly encouraged customers to use the My Digicel App to purchase all their data plans.
“The App has many exciting features, which can be experienced once installed and is easy to navigate,’’ he said.
